Didn't make it to the Farm on our first trip to Woodstock, so made a point this time. The building, barns, and grounds were lovely covered in snow. The horses (especially Jim) are huge, and lovely creatures. The dairy cow barns are definitely upscale barns, and a great way to see a working dairy enterprise. Really enjoyed seeing the beautiful...

Perfect for families with young children. Fun for adults as well. I got to churn my own butter, and eat it too! I was there during winter wassail. Better to go on Sunday, as it is much less crowded.

Visited the farm for Thanksgiving celebration. Kids had a lot of fun peeling apples, making pie crust and watching cow milking.

I really enjoyed my visit here. The film is well worth watching in the auditorium and we had a lovely wander through the barns and cowsheds. The animals looked in excellent condition although I was surprised to see the very young calves (one only 2 days old) separated from their mother. We had a lovely wander through the house and...

We visited the Billings Farm and Museum this past weekend during our stay in Woodstock. Admission was $14/per adult which got you entrance to the whole farm, all aspects of the museum, a wagon ride around a big plot of the property. It was pretty cool to see all of the aspects of a working farm from the animals to... More

We took some of our 4th Grader's to Billings Farm for a wonderful learning experience! All the students did their tour and enjoyed shucking corn, seeing how cows were milked, used an old fashioned saw and went on a 'hay ride'! The museum inside is gorgeous, then grounds very well kept and beautiful! And each tour guide, and staff member... More
